"Ted has an outstanding reputation, in-depth knowledge of the industry, and insight into customer needs and operations. Carolyn is extremely skilled at building and enhancing productive relationships to best meet customer needs, and in leading global teams.

Ms. Forsyth, whose tenure in the industry includes nearly 15 years of management experience with Pratt & Whitney Canada, is based in Aberdeen, Scotland. A graduate of McGill University and the University of Edinburgh, Ms. Forsyth came to Heli-One from Pratt & Whitney Canada, where most recently she was general manager of the company's Aftermarket Engine Sales and Leasing division.
